WHAT ARE THE TESTS INVOLVED?

COMPLETE PHYSICAL EXAMINATION

We perform a series of physical examinations assessing the uterus through external palpation, PAP smears, breast examinations and acquiring cervical cultures that will be examined by our lab team.

VAGINAL ULTRASOUND
This involves the use of a tampon-like probe into the vaginal canal. The probe would in turn send sound waves onto a video monitor which will help our specialist assess your uterus, its lining, walls as well as your ovaries. We offer a range of tests selected by our expert specialist who will be examining you, based on the condition and need:

SONOHYSTEROGRAM
This is a different ultrasound method that utilises a sterile saline fluid injected into your uterus through the cervix and would allow our doctor to inspect the shape and structure of your uterus.

HYSTEROSALPINGOGRAM (HSG)
In this test, our doctors would inject a special fluid that is visible in an X-Ray, into your uterus through the cervix. An X-Ray would help show the path of this fluid through the uterus and fallopian tubes allowing us to see if your fallopian tubes are open and the shape of the uterine cavity. You may experience mild discomfort and cramping after the procedure.

HYSTEROSCOPY
This procedure can be done with mild pain medication at our doctor’s office or in a surgical environment under anesthesia. In this method, we will use an instrument known as a Hysteroscope that’s connected to a camera on one end and insert it into the uterus through the cervix. This would allow our doctor to diagnose and treat problems seen within this cavity.

ENDOMETRIAL BIOPSY
This procedure is used only in certain cases to diagnose problems or infections associated with the endometrium.

TRIAL (OR MOCK) TRANSFER
This is a quick and painless procedure used to assess the length and breadth of the curvature of the patient’s cervical canal and uterine cavity. This is ideal for women who wish to undergo an IVF treatment and facilities the placement of embryos into the uterus at the time of the actual embryo transfer.
